Cross Country Skiing
Experience the pure joy of gliding over the frozen winter landscape on North Bay’s beautiful cross-country ski trails. With a history dating back to 1975, North Bay Nordic Ski Club welcomes an active community with 50km of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing through a pristine wilderness. Nordic, as it is affectionately known, is a family-friendly club with active youth and adult programming, lit trails for night skiing, a full stock of rentals and a heated clubhouse.
No vehicle when visiting? No problem. Nipissing University atop North Bay’s escarpment grooms cross-country ski trails for both traditional and skate ski – free to use and accessible by public transit! As the training grounds for the Nipissing Lakers Nordic Ski Team, the trails regularly host competitive ski races.
For additional cross country skiing and snowshoe options during your visit, you can head 20km south of North Bay to the Wasi Ski Club and access their 43km trail network.
